Just want to know what the settings on my camera are for ........auto, P, Tv, Av, M and then some pictures of a head, person n front of sun.....? just want to know when and where to use of theese diffrent features
I can answer a few: Auto is for letting the camera 'sense' and automatically choose the settings (focus, shutter speed, so forth). M is for manually setting these (via menu I think). The head is for portrait settings (likely to soften the look slightly), If I recall correctly person in front of sun is actually a night setting ie longer exposure- but I could be wrong; Mountain with cloud is for landscape shooting and Runner for action shots like at a soccer match (faster shutter). I don't recall what the double-dashed whistle shaper or SCN are. Movie mode (if you have a large enough memory card) creates short movies with sound. The double box could be for coding each picture that you want to eventually 'stitch' together. All this is in my (lost) manual and likely downloadable at Canon's website as a digital manual.

Sounds like you set either the aperture to a large small number (large aperture) or the shutter speed to a long value. If this is the case, it should be that in AUTO mode, things work fine, but one of C, M, Av or Tv (custom, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority) modes, the aperture or time are set to something that is good for indoors, but outdoors (where the light is brighter) too much light comes in.
It could also be that the ISO ("film" speed) is set too high for bright light. Again, in AUTO mode, the camera takes care of this setting.
Try each of the shooting modes and see which ones work. If Av is the one that is over-exposed, try making the aperture smaller. If Tv, make the shutter time shorter. If M, make both Aperture smaller and shutter time shorter.
You need to understand the relationship and teractivity of aperture, shutter speed and iso. In Av mod, you choose the aperture and the camera makes thw shutter speed agjustment, In Tv mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera makes the aperture adjustment, In manual, you have to set both shutter speed and aperture manually. If the ISO mode is set to AUTO, the camera chooses the sensors sensitivity to light automatically. Change to specific ISO (200-400 for daylight and 799-1600 for night). Take a picture in AV mode and note what shutter speed the camera chose. Then switch to TC mode choose the same shutter speed and see if camera chose the same aperture(f-stop) you chose in first shot. Change to Manual and choose same f-stop and shutter speed the camera chose for you in the other modes. Compare all three photos. They should be almost if not exactly the same exposure wise. In Tv mode choose a dlowers shutter speed, In Manual choose a combo of slower shuuter and wider f-stop(smaller number). Read your manual.
I hv philips 21RF vardaan TV ,there is sound on AV channel. and the picture is blinking. even some menu setting have changed.. i tried using the service menu but cudnt understand anything. 2 new av channels have come.. av2 and front which were not present before. sound is not coming even on the other channels but picture is fine on them. only on the av1 channel it is blinking., the philips technision had solved this prob once by pressing some code by remote and i don't know the system code
Couple of things to try - put it on full auto (green square on the dial) first. If it is still taking 20 seconds then there is something wrong unless you have set the self timer - is the camera beeping before it takes the shot? If this is the case, simply press the button under the AV button to switch between single shot, multi shot and timer.
If not timer, and it works in full auto, respond here and let me know what mode you are using (Av, Tv, M, P, A-Dep) and I'll suggest something else.
In order for the TV to work with the cable box by using a piece of coax and tuning the TV to channel 3, you must make sure the TV is in "Cable" mode on the tuner and not "AIR or Antenna" the frequency maps are different between these types of service and channel 3 cable will not be the same as channel 3 on Air or UHF/VHF.
Often there is an auto program feature on TV's that will "scan" for all available channels, and this should select the proper input type.
Check the playback menu that the review time has not been set to OFF. This will stop any pictures displaying on the back of the camera when taking them!
I leave mine at 2 secs which is long enough to quickly review and keeps the battery life up. If I need to review for longer, just use playback.
The flash won't come on if you have the camera in any of the creative modes (i.e. A-DEP, M, AV, TV or P). You can manually use it by pressing the flash button just above the lens release button on the front of the camera.
